Andre Rieu.

He was performing there when we visited Maastricht in 2012. They were building a set in the local square for his open air concert. Beautiful City with the Town Hall musical bells constantly competing with one of the local churches.

It has the most fabulous book shop contained within the fabric of a Medieval Church.

When you look at it you get 3 extra poles, couplings etc. it is very good value.

Hello,

We were thinking of one of these for our 310. After using them for a while are you both still happy? I guess the 240 size is a perfect fit for the 310. We don't want a full awning at the moment and this seems a speedy and simple alternative for first timers like us. Lighter and simpler than a bag awning.

The two CC sites we have been on at the moment are gravel hard standing pitches. Would I need to buy some tougher pegs to go with it? Also, are any additional guide ropes needed or are the two supplied sufficient?

Thanks.

Yup, very pleased with ours and if you buy the front net then extra ropes/pegs come with it. We have never found the need for extra ropes although we use our standard metal pegs that are thin enough to go through the holes in the foot of the poles as opposed to the plastic ones supplied.

I'd recommend metal "Rock Pegs" for gravel hard stand use - in fact I find them essential in these circumstances - but as mentioned make sure they aren't too large a diameter to fit through any eyelets you need to use !

We are very pleased with the Isabella shadow, we use it on short breaks when we dont need an awning as It takes only minutes to put up and down.
You will need rock pegs on hardstanding as suggested, however I use the angled ribbed pegs for extra strength in case I get caught out with strong winds. At night time we take it down so we don't have to worry about it, we also leave the pegs insitu and put it back up in the morning. It sounds like a bit of a bind but it is really easy to put up and take down. As you can see from the picture there is a middle guy rope which helps to stabilise and also create a run off for water. The 240 is perfect for the Familia, the other sizes will be too big,

Edit.. my Isabella 240 came with three guy ropes, if yours doesn't the one in the middle makes a big difference to shoot any water off.

Forgot to mention this last time around, but I would strongly recommend ordering/purchasing at the same time 2 of these clips which come in pairs anyway. Essentially the shank of the bolt and it's retainer slip onto the awning rail and you slide the clip along until the forks are top and bottom over the awning and when in position, tighten down on the head. Repeat this on both sides.
The Shadow is so light that if the wind is in the wrong direction it can slide a bit along the awning rail whilst these very small clips hold it in place.

Thanks for all the help - much appreciated. I will order one next week. Do the angled ribbed pegs have a special name and also the clips? (Or could you please provide a link).

Hi Philip. No good me giving you a link to the clips as I am located in Germany but if you Google Isabella Safe Lock you'll find several outlets. The place you buy the Shadow from shall no doubt have them anyway.
